As the home of Wagyu beef, it’s genuinely impossible to go wrong with any filet you eat in the Land of the Rising Sun, and one of its rarest forms has made its way to the states. Holy Grail Steak Co. has put forth a trio of different Maezawa Beef filets from Ogata Farms, each loaded up with marbling that you’ve got to see to believe.

The ever-so-assiduous Ogata Family Farms is based in Maezawa, a tiny town within Japan’s Iwate prefecture. As a result of merely 800 calves found per farm, the farmers can maintain it with care, providing a lax, serene environment that allows each calf to rest with no interruption. From a flavor standpoint, they are each fed an interesting diet that consists of beer, whiskey, honey, and more, resulting in each filet’s subtle sense of sweetness.

With its marbled look and smooth texture, this luxurious meat cuts like butter, resulting in an eating experience that might make you the envy of all your friends. In fact, these cuts are so good that they have been informally dubbed “toro of the land,” referring to the equally appetizing cut of tuna belly. With two distinct Japanese marbling grades, you can choose between the meatier A4 or fattier A5.

There’s almost no wrong way to cook these — unless you’re grilling them up well-done, of course. Take your pick between Filet Mignon, Strip, or Rib Eye on Holy Grail Steak Co.’s site now, with prices starting from $129.
